An Elk Grove woman was arrested Thursday afternoon for elder and child abuse as well as animal cruelty after police found three people living in filthy conditions on the 4600 block of Stuben Court.
At about 4 p.m., police found two children, a 14-year-old and a 12-year-old girl, as well as a 53-year-old woman living in Charlotte Permenter's home, which was covered in garbage and debris as well as dog, mouse, and rat feces.
Permenter, 32, was arrested and taken to the main jail. The elder woman was taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, and the children were taken into custody by Child Protective Services.
Pets found in the home were taken to the SPCA.
